Okolona! Where the wind goes sweeping through the atmosphere?

I assume everyone knows what I'm talking about when I say radar. Not just the images they show on TV, but the actual instrument. Big, white, round thing on a tower. Usually at airports. Kind of looks like a volley ball. If you're still clueless, here's a picture: Anyway, the ones that they use for the images on TV do not point up. The ones that are pointed directly upward just measure the wind speeds and directions up in the atmosphere. This is pretty handy for forecasting; however, the state of Mississippi only has one that does this and it is located in Okolona. Why, I ask you?

I was walking past the cafeteria today when I saw a table set up on the sidewalk that was sporting a poster advertising free haircuts. Sure enough, a girl was standing behind the table with a squirt bottle and a pair of scissors, about to work her magic on some guy's head. I wouldn't have a problem with this except for the fact that it's been super windy all day. Why would she pick the windiest day in quite a while to be the day she gives free haircuts outside? They can't turn out well. And there was a pretty long line stretched out beside the table. I, for one, would never in a million years let some random girl with a sloppy poster set up on the sidewalk touch my hair with scissors, and certainly not when it's windy, and I discourage anyone else from doing it either. The results will most likely be disastrous. Not to mention, she was going to town with the squirt bottle. I'm surprised the guy's head didn't turn into a giant icecube.

The End of an Era

I am currently about halfway through the last day of my teenage years. It's really kind of sad. I am celebrating by going to see Twilight at the midnight premiere. I hope they don't screw it up, but even if they do, it's semi-excusable because a friend of mine is paying for my ticket. Hooray for birthdays!

Why would an institution keep the air conditioning on in the common areas of a dorm when the temperature outside (according to my Weather Channel desktop) is 35 degrees? I just walked down the hall and almost got frostbite on all of my toes. I felt like I should be shoveling through a mountain of snow instead of walking to my room. It seems like an awful waste of energy if you ask me. This is coming from the university that runs the sprinklers during the rain though, so I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised.

Hazardous Dreams

I woke up this morning and went to the bathroom to begin my daily getting ready ritual. When I looked in the mirror, I noticed a long scratch down my cheek. Since I don't remember getting in any catfights, I can only assume that I had a particularly rough night's sleep last night. I suppose it could have been a lot worse; I mean I could have woken up with a black eye. I wonder what I was dreaming about that made me lash out at myself. Maybe I was dreaming that a giant octopus had one of his suckers on my face, and i was trying to pry it off. Or maybe I was dreaming that I was the guy in Poltergeist that claws his face off. Whatever it was, I hope I don't dream it again. I don't enjoy being a hazard to myself.

Nothing in Particular

I just recalled that I haven't posted in over a week. This was unintentional. I've sat down at my computer several times and started to type out a post, but got called away to do something else halfway through. By the time I got back around to it, whatever it was I had planned to say was already irrelevant.

Unfortunately, I do not have anything particularly profound to say at the moment. I just figured I'd post something so you wouldn't all think I had been kidnapped. I assure you, I have not. I am safe and sound in my dorm room watching CSI reruns on Spike. The current episode is "Toe Tags" just in case you were wondering. I've seen it at least two times before.

Ooh! I just remembered that I have Dove chocolates in my freezer. I'll catch you later...

It's the first day of my favorite month. November! I will be 20 in 20 days. Pretty neat huh?

Anyway, we played Kentucky today. The score is not important. What is important is our new screen is now operational! Our team may not be that great, but at least we have the biggest screen east of the Mississippi!
